lie. >> and the big panel weighs in on george w. bush's jaw-dropping new interview. >> eight years was awesome. and you know, i was famous and i was powerful. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. another day, another new plan of attack for the romney campaign. yesterday, it was the dart board mentality. today, it's the kitchen sink approach. >> his priority is not creating jobs for you. his priority is trying to keep his own job, and that's why he's going to lose it. he's out of touch, out of ideas, out of excuses. that's why in november we have to get him out of office. he divides us. he tried to diminish those who have been successful in one walk of life or another. it's simply wrong. >> to recap, president obama cares about his own job and not yours. he's out of touch and out of excuses. and he's a president who is just dividing america and tearing americans apart. you know, gone are the days when mitt romney would say something nice about president obama, that he's a nice guy. >> i think he's a nice person. i just don't think we can afford him any longer. >> conser
extreme speech and it really hurt george h.w. bush get re-elected that year. so sarah palin's not very popular in this country, especially with certain constituencies that they are trying to woo. mitt romney is in israel trying to get jewish votes in the united states. obama got 78% of jews the last time, in large part because sarah palin was on the ticket. so if he wants those jewish votes in ohio and florida, mitt romney wants to move away from sarah palin. on the other hand, if he moves too far away, he alienates the palin supporters in states like iowa that he's going to need for his base. >> sure. >> so he's in a tough spot on palin. >> very difficult spot there. does liz chainy do damage to her credibility saying that sarah palin is more qualified than barack obama and joe biden combined? i don't know many republicans that will honestly say that. >> that was kind of over the top. she was trying to clean up for her old man and show her loyalty to sarah palin and the tea party folks. they should not be underestimated. the most vivid demonstration of the power of the tea party was a
's the equiv lnlt of 2004, of democrats saying we're going to bring up george w. bush's alcoholism and the fact until the age of 40, he really didn't have any purpose in his life. well, that might have been relevant for some democrats, you might have wanted to dwell on that. but actually, by that point, he had invaded two countries. he had a record as president. if you want to go out and dislike this president, if you feel negative about him, there are plenty of things to grab on to. what does it do for people who are the gettable voters, the swing voters, the independent voters. they think this is completely off topic. go down this rabbit hole for the republicans. it won't take them any closer to landing a blow on a president, a sitting president they're going for, not a new guy running for nomination. >> yeah, bob shrum, when a campaign decides to go heavily negative in july, what does it tell you about the campaign? >> this is, in 2004, we never brought up the fact that george w. bush had been an alcoholic until 40. it would have hurt us, we knew it would have hurt us. when the stuff about h
the previous president, george w. bush, who openly shunned any invitations to the naacp convention. but there was one moment where mitt romney delivered an actual policy position. the reception, that was not very warm. >> if our goal is jobs, we have to stop spending over a trillion dollars more than we take in every year. and so to do that, i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find. that includes obamacare, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boos ] >> 14 seconds. that's how long mitt romney was booed for saying he will repeal obamacare. reporters on the scene said the reaction was stunning. >> i have not heard that kind of sustained booing for mitt romney during the course of this campaign up until what happen today at the naacp. i don't think it really is sort of overstating it. this was perhaps one of the most negative reactions mitt romney has had in the course of his 2012 presidential campaign. >> after the speech, romney said he expected to be booed by the crowd. he told fox news the crowd was with him more than they were against him.
and the presidency. to be fair, you have to go back to 2008 when george w. bush was the president of the united states in order to find one, but here it is. >> next time you hear politicians say he or she will bring down oil prices, understand it's complete bs. if they want lower prices, cut back. sell those suvs, ride a bike when you can. if every one of us bought 10% less gasoline, prices would fall fast. >> well, happy fourth of july, republicans. next time you want to use gas prices as a political tool, make sure you listen to your friend bill o'reilly because he's always looking out for you. get your cell phones out. want to know what you think. will republicans ever stop using gas prices as a political ploy? text a for yes, text b for no, to 622639. we'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm joined tonight by a man who has answered, commissioner of the commodity futures trading commission. we have been down this road, but i like to remind them how this all works. explain the main reason gas prices have dropped 60 cents in the last three months. what's going on? >> hey, ed. we have

presidential candidate george h.w. bush won the election, and he also said something at his convention that would come back to haunt him. >> read my lips, no new taxes. >> oops, this time around, we have mitt romney in a fix over his tax returns. and this is what he had to say about it. >> you know what, i put out as much as we're going to put out. once i have added the year, this year, and that's the information that gives people more information than is required by law. >> it's already been packages into an obama ad. >> you know what, i put out as much as we're going to put out. >> i'm joined tonight by howard fineman, nbc political news analyst, and editorial director of the huffington post media group. howard, great to have you with us. what are you hearing from republicans because the dam seems to have already broken with conservatives calling on him to release more returns. this is just a continual drip. >> i was laughing when you in o introduced me because i was talking to your producer, and you and i and he all had the same idea at the same time earlier today. which is, is the
of a past president, why not pick one from his own party, like president george w. bush. after l he wants to keep all of the bush tax cuts and add more tax cuts for the rich. that's why clinton said romney basically wants to do what they did before on steroids, which will get you the same consequences you got before on steroids. let's bring in msnbc political analyst and bloomberg columnist jonathan alter. you're writing a book on the campaign. i think you got a chapter tonight. is it possible that mitt romney doesn't know what he's talking about and he got hung up on his bs on the stump? >> he's trying to do something specific here, which is to say that barack obama is a paleoliberal, as some kind of very old fashioned, big government liberal before bill clinton came along and said the era of big government is over. the problem is that not just because hillary clinton is serving in his administration, but if you go down the issues one after another, barack obama is a clinton democrat. he is not some kind of, you know, 1950s style democrat. so they might not always get along that well per
to be their presidential nominee to succeed president george w. bush, the guy who was supposed to win in '08, the guy who was the early beltway favorite was fred thompson. fred thompson who was an actor on "law and order" and who is a large man and had a very deep voice and who looks very presidential-ish from a distance on tv. and i've always thought that the fred thompson mania of the 2008 presidential race, the sort of pundit mania over the prospects for fred thompson were largely based on what he looked like and he's a big guy and has this big great voice. in terms of his resume, what he was known for was being an actor on "law and order." he had been a lobiest for decades on washington. that usually means you have represented some unpolitically correct clients. in his case some abortion rights clients when he was trying to run as an anti-abortion rights politician. in addition to bb a lobbyist and the guy on tv, he served one and a half terms in the u.s. senate. but honestly his time in the senate was characterized by no real accomplishment of any note. there's no fred thompson legislative achieveme
